Twenty-five people were wounded in less than 48 hours over the weekend in New York City.

At least 12 people were shot in Brooklyn, eight in the Bronx and another four in Queens, according to The Daily News.

Officials said that six people were killed in the shootings that spanned from late Friday to Sunday afternoon.

Three of the victims were wounded in a shooting in Brooklyn that left civilians ducking for cover.

The NYPD is searching for the alleged gunman, Kevon Brown, who allegedly shot two police officers during the incident.

The shootings over the two days account for 5 percent of the city's 440 shootings, which is still a 23 percent drop compared to the 574 people shot through this time last year.
